The new Google Pixel 7 Pro is official after months of rumors and YouTubers. PBK reviews Here’s a closer look at its internals in its latest teardown video.
The process begins by removing the SIM slot and applying heat near the side of the display to loosen the glue. After removing the screen, we find the metal bracket that covers the internal parts. After the screen is disconnected and the cover is removed, we finally see the 5,000 mAh battery held in place by a lot of adhesive and we also see two well-placed pull tabs.
The main board is covered with a large graphite film to help with cooling. Removing a few connectors and screws reveals the camera assembly, which consists of a 50MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide sensor and an updated 48MP telephoto module with 5x optical zoom. A few steps later and we see the new 11 MP selfie camera with autofocus.
The USB-C charging port appears to be soldered to the motherboard, making maintenance quite difficult. The rear glass is attached to the frame which is another difficult part to repair. The Pixel 7 Pro gets a repair score of 5.5/10 which is average.
